A couple of weeks ago, Compassion announced that there were 300 children who needed correspondent sponsors. I asked for two new kids, a boy and a girl, to be added to my account. Today, I was blessed to "meet them" I would like to introduce them to you.
This beautiful girl is Khushi. She is 9 years old and from India. She is from a community that is actually IN the Himalayan mountains. Cold!!! Her birthday is September 24th. She is in 2nd grade. She lives with her mother, who is unemployed, and her father, who is a laborer. Khushi helps at home by making beds and buying/selling in the market. For fun, she likes to play hide-and-seek and play house.
I am already in love with her. It's like a match made in heaven. First, her shirt says Target on it, which is my absolute favorite store. And! She's wearing Converse low tops, which are the only types of shoes I wear. I plan to tell her all about how I wear the same type of shoes.
Also, I'd like you to meet Karanja, from Kenya. I have always wanted a child from Kenya, but have not been called sponsor there. I am so excited to get to know this guy! He is 13 years old and will turn 14 on July 6th (Just like my Florenc!). Karanja is in 6th grade, with average performance. His guardian is his mother. His parents are separated and his father is no longer supporting or living with the family. His mother works as a farmer. Karanja helps at home by cleaning, caring for animals, and carrying water. Hard work for such a young man. For fun, Karanja likes to run, play hide-and-seek, and play ball games.
I am so excited to get to know these two beautiful children!
